2012 Tony Award Winner for Best Play

This honest and powerful production provides us with a multi-generational glimpse at the re-gentrification of a neighborhood. A poignant and thought-provoking play, Clybourne Park is more than “black and white”- it’s human.
The play explodes in two outrageous acts set fifty years apart. Act One takes place in 1959, as white community leaders anxiously try to stop the sale of a home to a black family. Act Two is set in the same house in the present day, as the now predominantly African-American neighborhood battles to hold its ground in the face of gentrification.
The cast of Clybourne Park is:
LaRonda Etheridge as Bev/Kathy
Bob Gabrielli as Russ/Dan
Andi Tyrell as Francine/Lena
Idris Ozoya as Albert/Kevin
Christopher Willson as Jim/Steve
Meghan Kirwin as Betsy/Lindsey
Keith Roberts as Karl/Tom
Mason Vokes as Kenneth
